Before WordPress… there was Blogger. Blogger was my first blog host. i had some good times with Blogger, but after 2 months we were fighting every day. i felt like i couldn’t “be myself” within the Blogger platform. Yes, it got kind of ugly and i said some nasty things. Not proud of it… ashamed really. I left Blogger without a single glance back. For the last 5 months, i have pretended that my Blogger blog never existed, tossing it out on the www with no hope of aligned text or good links or any semblance of ok html.
that is until today. today i was like,
and then i cried. not really. but i wanted to. instead i ate more cookies and lamented over the fact that even if i had a million dollars, i couldn’t buy the iPhone or buy the complete second season of Battlestar Galactica on the iTunes store. seriously Steve, that sucks!!
So… i went and took a look at my old Blogger Blog’s html stuff and found i could code a nice and simple template quite well. i also felt that Blogger had be doing a lot of “self-improvement” and deserved some props for adding a lot of functionality. i was able to put my embedded flash movies up and add a revver widget and some other ad-like java things in the sidebar licketty-split… which made me think,
blogger, you can look quite snazzy, can’t you… quite snazzy indeed! even the header graphic looks better. grrr… it DOES look better. erg! damn you blogger, you’re making my wordpress blog look bad!
